chrysanthemusizkal davanas



the slender tuberose lady
gets a bit insecure
and fuming jealous
of a sudden pick
overnight sensation:
a leathery ashy green
leafy chrysanthemum
at its fragrant best

walking alongside
are the priceless aromatic heavens
‘majura marikkukozhundhu’ davanas
minute and humblest
openhearty cheerleaders

p.s: some tamil words used above:
semmangi (tuberose), majura/madura (city of madurai), marikkozhundhu (davana, Artemisia pallens)
